Welded n, Broken Hall and Saved
Triiliiloml of 1'axNenifera,
' When the 8:23 limited pulled Into
Wheatley, In thin county, one evening,
It was discovered, sny the Le Sueur
correHpoiHlont of the Ht I'uul Vloiieer
Press, that one of the rear wheela on
the last coach wuh hroken, a piece hnv
lug been split off from one side, so
that there was a sightly flat place on
the wheel, and, as It was feared, the
broken wheel In pounding over the
track had broken a rail. Only by a mir
acle was the 8:50 local saved from be
Three miles south of Itoitley the flat
tened wheel had broken out a section
of rail about seven feet long broken
It out bo badly that it was torn from
the spikes and lay across the rails,
where It was found five minutes before
the local was due by Willy Schult,, a
boy of 14 years, who lives on a farm
near by. The lad knew that the local
soon would lie along and he was fright
ened. He put the piece of rail In place
and then started down the track to
ward the approaching train, running as
fast as lie could lie had not gone
twenty feet, however, when there came
a blinding flash of lightning from a
dark cloud that covered the sky, and
lie was struck down unconscious and
nearly bereft of life.
It must have been ton minutes bo
fore be regained consciousness, for
when be did so lie saw the train com
ing toward him at great speed. Ho
staggered to his feet, the remembrance
of the broken rail still in his mind,
and waved his hands, but the engine
did not stop, and, just as it was about
to crush him, lie stepped from the rails
and the train sped on.
But the engineer at the hist moment
had seen tlw boy step out of the en
gine's way, and, throwing on the lever,
stopped the train after It had run sev
eral hundred feet beyond the break In
When the engineer Jumped down and
came running back to see what the
trouble was, young Schultz told him
and showed him the place where the
rail had been broken ; but now It was
perfectly sound. The flash of light
ning that struck Schultz down spent
the main portion of Its force on the
track In the Immediate locality where
the fracture was, and had evenly and
perfectly welded the broken rail In
place at both ends. Tlic track was as
safe and solid as it was the day It was
"MIKE" SCORES "FAKE" LABEL8.
Points Ont-Pewster-Covered Trunk aa
an Example of Egotism.
"Mike," the head baggage Bmasher
at the Grand Central station, laughed
scornfully as he tacklod a trunk from
in incoming train. Tlie receptacle was
literally plastered with labels, show
ing that the owner had, presumably,
traveled through many foreign cities.
There were labels from London, Paris,
Berlin, Naples, Shanghai, and even
"Another one of them fakes," said
Mike," disgustedly. '
"What do you meanT asked the new
"What is labels for?" said "Mike,"
by way of reply. Then he answered his
own question by adding: "They're to
show the trainmen where the baggage
Is bound for, ain't they? And when a
man goes from one city to another, the
baggagemen paste the proper label over
the oae that was hero before. Other
wise, nobody could tell which city tlie
trunk was bound for. If a trainman
aboard should see a trunk or valiso
labeled 'Vienna,' 'Paris' or Tondon' all
at the same time, he'd have brain fever
trying to figure out where the trunk
really was bound. They don't use th.i
brass check system over there as they
,. "It's safe betting that the man who
owns this trunk is one of those ego
tistical asses who wants to show off.
Perhaps he has made a trip abroad;
and while there he begged, borrowed or
stole a lot of labels and pasted them
on his trunk to make people believe he
has been in all those cities. But to
those who know he is simply advertis
ing the fact that he is a chump of the
first water." And "Mike" threw the
trunk on one side with more force than
was necessary. New York Press,

The best is Hood's Sarsaparilla. It
is the best because it does the most good.
While it makes the blood pure, fresh

ThArA u mora Catarrh in this section of the
country than all other diseases put together,
and until the last few years was supposed toba
incurable. For a great many rearsdoctors pro
nounced it a local dlseane, and prescribed looal
remedies, and by constantly Tailing to cure
with local treatment, pronounced It incurable.
Science b as proven catarrh to be a constitu

factured by T. S. Cheney A Co. .Toledo, Ohio, Is
the only constitutional cure on the market. It
Is taken Internally in doses from 10 drops to a

Many prospective purchaser! of engine! ind
boilers are under the impression that because the
Atlas Throttling Engine is of such high grade,
and because it is fitted with balance valve and
amain bearing, such as only Corliss engines of
other makes contain, it is necessarily of such
price that it is quite out of their reach. This is
not true. An Atlas engine is no higher in price
than any other engine, except, perhaps, one
that is made entirely in a foundry.

the present an approximate price upon a 12x16

as with joyous hearts and smiling faces they romp and play when in health
and how conducive to health the games in which they indulge, the outdoor
life they enjoy, the cleanly, regular habits they should be taught to form and
the wholesome diet of which they should partake. How tenderly their health
should be preserved, not by; constant medication, but by careful avoidance of
every medicine of an injurious or objectionable nature and if at any time a
remedial agent is required, to assist nature, only those of known excellence
should be used; remedies which are pure and wholesome and truly beneficial
in effect, like the pleasant laxative remedy, Syrup of Figs, manufactured by
the. California Fig Syrup Co. Syrup of Figs has come into general favor in
many millions of well informed families, whose estimate of its quality and
excellence is based upon personal knowledge and use.
Syrup of Figs has also met with the approval of physicians generally, be
cause they know it is wholesome, simple and gentle in its action. We inform
all reputable physicians as to the medicinal principles of Syrup of Figs, obtained,
by an original method, from certain plants known to them to act most benefici
ally and presented in an agreeable syrup in which the wholesome Californian
blue figs are used to promote the pleasant taste; therefore it is not a secret rem
edy and hence we are free to refer to all well informed physicians, who do not
approve of patent medicines and never favor indiscriminate self-medication.
Please to remember and teach your children also that the genuine Syrup
of Figs always has the full name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co..
plajnly printed on the front of every package and that it is for sale in
bottles of one size only. If any dealer offers any other than the regular Fifty
cent size, or having printed thereon the name of any other company, do not
accept it. If you fail to get the genuine you will not get its beneficial effects.
Every family should alwavs have a bottle on hand.
